Colorado Blue



Is not a cool color setting on your favorite camera,

but maybe it should be…?

It’s the view that results from an unobstructed,

unpolluted path between you and what’s real.

It is more than a sharply focused panorama.

It’s the clarity of pure flowing water in the Rockies,

and air so clean it hurts a little to breathe it until

you adjust.


Maybe…it’s a state of mind?


But if it was a setting I would apply it to everything,

a cleaner, clearer, purer life.


I was warned about Colorado.

I’ve seen pictures that hinted at, but failed

to capture its majestic magnificence.

Now bitten, I’m smitten, surely to return time and again,

thanks to you, and Colorado Blue.
